Our home is in the heart of Glenfield. We are so close to everything like 5 min walk to the shopping mall, doctors, bus routes, gym, library and video shop. To get to the Central City the bus only takes about 15 minutes - very easy! Also the beaches which are gorgeous, are a 10 minute drive, you can get to the beaches and cafes by bus easily too.

My partner and I live here and we are 48 & 50 yrs. Breakfast is included and if you wish us to make you a meal in the evening this can be arranged though you are welcome to make your own meals.

We have a cat - an old one - Willow. She is friendly but not in your face.
We have an outdoor deck that is private and that catches the sun. Our neighbours are very friendly (also have home stay students).

    Maria is an exceptional host. I was sad to leave as the accommodation was so comfy!! Very close to Glenfield Mall, a quiet neighborhood & spacious room.
    The house is modern & warm. Internet very fast. There was nothing lacking & Maria was very helpful with anything I needed. I highly recommend.

    We loved having Donna stay with us as she is so friendly, loved our animals just as much as we do and blended with our very busy environment being very busy herself. Donna is independent, very tidy and clean, helpful and has a positive attitude. We would welcome Donna back to stay with us thats for sure.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
